*that* was the problem???

The dictionary says,

If you specify any of EOF, end, or empty, the read continues reading until
it reaches the end of the file. (If you're reading from a serial port, you
must use the form read from file portname until empty.)

I'm reading this as meaning that the entire buffer will be handed over.

For my purposes, I suppose that I could loop until "read until cr" comes up

While the communication has other purposes, my own use will
typically/frequently have multiple lines.
